Question about Acer NSK8458AN Keyboard

2 Answers

I have clicked a button to the right of the space bar by accident on my acer aspire laptop. It is a button with a box with lines and an arrow in it. It has prevented the curser from going in to the word document to type or save my work. However I can use the internet and items on the desktop as the word document was not the full screen. How can I undo this an continue typing? Sarah

This button is simply the keyboard equivalent of a right-click, you should be able to right click on your mouse and then left click and you should be alright.

If its the icon Ithink it is it should only bring up a menu the same as right clicking. sounds as if your word document may have crashed, press ctrl+Alt+delete and open the task manager, does it say microsoft word- not responding? if so then hopefully you have saved your work as it will have to close, depending on the version of word you have it may do an auto backup if it crashes,,, press end task and it should close.

Hope this helped

How do I remove a bios password and hard drive password from an Acer 3050 laptop?

juan_perez_m, I would like you to download the Service Manual, for the Acer Aspire 3050 series of laptops,

On this page you can go to the Right side, and click on Acer, or scroll down the page to the heading - Acer.

In the paragraph(?) that starts with Aspire 1200, go down to the second line.
Scroll across to 3050, and Left-click on it.
(Fifteenth one over)

This is a PDF file. Give it a few seconds to see the first page, and additional time to fully download.
(Advise letting the file download all the way before looking through it.
Watch the Download Progress bar)

Once the file has fully downloaded, go to Page 105 shown in the PDF page number box.

(The page number box is in the top header, to the right of the blue Down Arrow.

Instead of using the Down Arrow to go to Page 105, you can left-click once in the page number box, type 105, and press the Enter key.
Much faster.

Ignore if you are already aware)

Clear BIOS Password Procedures.
G1 is the clear BIOS password jumper.

Yessir, you have to disassemble the laptop, in order to access this jumper.
It's a method to help prevent thievery.

Don't forget to observe Anti-Static Precautions before, and during disassembly.

If what I have stated sounds like a foreign language to you, come back in a Comment, and we'll work together on the procedure.

The wireless icon has vanished on my acer aspire one netbook and i cant get online

Go to Start/Settings/Network Connections. When the window opens right click on the Wireless Network Icon and select Properties. In XP there should be a check box to allow display of notification when connected. If some other OS, hold the right button down on the Icon and drag it to the task bar. It should drop an icon for showing the status.
Before doing all of this, is there an arrow to the left of the icons? If so, click on it see if the Icon is simply hidden.
